What is Social Anxiety?

Social anxiety is a fear of social interactions. It often manifests as embarrassment, self-consciousness, and reluctance to connect with others out of fear of judgment.

Sometimes, the feeling of worry is so overwhelming that it leads to avoidance or panic.

During this weekend, we will examine the paralyzing thoughts in our minds that fuel these fears. We will evaluate if they are truthful or misleading.

What is this weekend going to look like? How do I know if this is for me?

This is not an ordinary workshop with seminars and note-taking.

This is a potentially life-altering training where we will go out and confront our fears. We will engage with new people and learn tools to connect with people authentically. Before long, we will be building meaningful connections and chatting up new people on the streets of Palo Alto!

If this sounds challenging, but exciting to you -- then great! We encourage you to register and test your limits.

However, If the idea of interacting with others feels overwhelming and disabling right now, then that's okay! We'd love to have you for next time.

Based on the techniques of Dr. David Burns, M.D. Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Stanford and best-selling author.
